all five identical female characters, who have previously had ten lines maximum between them throughout the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, come together and re-enact Kate Beaton's "sexism is over" panel before disappearing for the remainder of the movie?

it's the endgame mate, endgame for bigotry.

Don't worry. Thor is about to become a woman.

It does seem like strange timing to tell us about one shot in a movie from, what was it, April?

Uh no they're all brilliantly entertaining films doing more for women's rights and addressing misogyny than anything in the history of cinema and indeed the arts.


The apex of culture.

I thought that scene was cheesy as fuck.
Half expected "Sisters are doin it for themselves" to be the soundtrack.

I don't hate women or anything though.  I think they're alright.

My sister, who is a woman, hated that scene. Good to see she's not alone.

It's weird, because they did the exact same thing in Infinity War, only with three female heroes and actually followed it up with a fight.

Even less explicable that they're offering to assist Captain Marvel, who just HEADBUTTED A SPACESHIP TO DEATH. Like, no offence to the lass on the flying horse but I don't see how she's going to help much.

Would have made more sense if it was Nebula who had to make the final blow against Thanos, which would also have been narratively much more satisfying, what with him having cunted her life up. I assume that was what happened in an earlier draft, before they had to crowbar in Captain Marvel.

I was more worried for Gwyneth Paltrow and the Mantis, fuck all combat experience.

Well Paltrow twatted Guy Pierce into a big fire in Iron Man 3 and Mantis helped attack Thanos at the end of Infinity War, but yeah - not the same as this kind of big battle.

Just to check, is it Tony Stark sacrificing himself by using the power glove thing to bring back everybody, or Captain America travelling back in time to live out his life happily that you don't want spoiling?

Probably Black Widow sacrificing herself to obtain the Soul Stone, or Thanos hiding the Power Stone up his arse.

I thought that bit was TOTAL CRINGE but if it made some people happy that's okay, my favourite bit was Captain Marvel's lesbian hair but I bet some people thought that was TOTAL CRINGE.

I've just watched it and it was NOTHING

A big nothing.

"oh how is the blonde one ever going to get past all those enemies?" oh the blonde one who has just literally flown through space and carved a huge airship in half using just her fucking head and suffered no ill effects? That blonde one?

I'm still unclear as to why Joe Biden turned up at the end. And why he quite rudely said "Nah" to that guy who was just making polite conversation about his wife.

I will say this for it though - I now know where literally every meme in the Internet comes from
